Ingredients

  • 1.5 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 pound Boneless chicken breast cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 7-8 bacon slices
  • 2 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • cup ranch seasoning
  • 8 ounce sour cream at room temperature and softend
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Wash rice in a colander under running tap, until the water runs clear. Keep aside.
  • Using a kitchen scissor to cut bacon into bite-sized pieces.
  • Turn on instant pot and switch to 'Saute' mode.
  • When the inner pot is hot cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, keep aside. Discard bacon fat.
  • Keep the Instant pot in saute mode, add oil, and let it heat.
  • Add chopped onion, minced garlic. Saute until the onion has softened, looks translucent.
  • Add chicken breast, rice, ranch seasoning, pepper, and stock to the pot. Give everything a good stir. Check the seasoning and add more salt if required.
  • Close the lid, and set the valve to sealing. Use the manual/pressure cook button and set the time to 8 minutes.
  • It will take some time for the pot to come to full pressure and then the timer will start.
  • Once the timer is off, let it rest/ naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. Then move the valve to release any remaining pressure.
  • Open the lid carefully. Add sour cream, crispy bacon, and chopped parsley. Stir to combine. (ref note 1).
  • Serve hot.

Notes

  1. We prefer the rice this way, but if you feel it is too dry for your liking, add ⅓-1/2 cup heavy cream and stir. The rice will be more creamy and wet consistency.
